because this is the united states of america. >> it's chaos, joe. you're seeing this out right bedlam, as the congress is saying americans have talked about dysfunction. this is dysfunction with steroids. and they're acting as if we can't count. the only way you can bring the taxes to the millionaires, really, basically, saying 900 people -- people that make $900,000 a year can keep their tax deductions or their tax breaks, you're going to have to take that from the middle class. you wrote about that today. break down what this really will be in terms of make iing the mie class have to pay out of their pocket. >> it's just a complete shachl. thank god we have representative cleveland here to enlighten us. it means it can't be understood. john boehner is looking out for john boehner and looking out for his job. he does not at this moment have the votes. we're going through this sham to protect the rich. i do think that they were trying to do something tricky and look like, okay, maybe we sort of got that americans would like to see the rich pay a little bit more in taxzs so we'll do th
tragedy like newtown. and his choice of vice president biden signals a robust effort to confront america's foremost gun lobbyists. >> the nra is an organization that has members who are mothers and fathers. and i would expect that they've been impacted by this as well. and hopefully they'll do some self-reflection. >> indeed. self-reflection is something joe biden's recommended as well. confronted by a particularly zealous gun advocate during the youtube presidential debate in 2011. >> tell me your position on gun control as myself and other americans really want to know if our babies are safe. this is my baby. purchased under the 1994 gun ban. >> i tell you what, if that's his baby. he needs help. i think he just made an admission against self-interest. i don't know that he's mentally qualified to own that gun. >> the vice president went on to deliver an em passioned defense of gun control to keep citizens safe from lethal weapons falling into the wrong hands. scripting the federal assault weapons ban. all of which earned mr. biden his "f" rating from the nra. the nra is prepared to off
is desperately trying to change america and tries to browbeat and ridicule and intimidate the rest of us into putting up with anti-democratic oppression by very militant, small groups. i think we have to prove that we are prepared when necessaries to use the police, we are prepared when necessary to file lawsuits. and we are not -- we are going to go after them. >> sean: these are two big losses for the president. i mean, president, big supporter of big labor, went there the day before. and the legislature, you know, passed right to work, which by the way, ends legalized stealing -- not rank-and-file members, i am talking about the union leadership. they shouldn't be spending rank-and-file monopolitical cam paibs. susan rice, the president tried to stand up for her and that didn't work either. this shwe interpret that as it relates to negotiations with the president? >> well, look, i think the negotiations are something to talk about. but what we are seeing is the natural balance of things. president obama won a victory. it was a big victory, an impressive victory. i didn't think he coul
' shoulders and they'd hear patriotic speeches and say the pledge of allegiance and god bless america and leave the place cleaner than when they found it. i ask you through this prism as they compare this to the tea party. there was a vendor in the tent, a hot dog guy, been working there for 16 years. i interviewed this man on my radio program. they ruined his equipment, knocked over his food, and well, let me play the rest for you. >> they trampled the tent and everything ir had. they were under the tent, tables. hot dog buns, chili, all my utensils, and then they were saying like okay, make a chili dog now. everything's on the ground. they called me the n word. they called me scum. you're on the wrong side, and like i said to them, sean, that i was there to do a job. prosperity hired me to do a job to sell hot dogs. i'm not here and i'm not on that side. i'm just here. so it really didn't make a difference to those guys. >> sean: you were hired to do a job, and they purposely started destroying your equipment, calling you the n word and uncle tom? go ahead. >> they didn't care. they
court sz. >> how do you see it? >> marriage equality is part of america's future. we saw that in state after state in the last election. the supreme court will take up the issue, and i hope that they understand as most of us do that this is part of our future. marriage equality and the equal treatment of people who have made this decision is part of what america is all about. >> final point, senator durbin. susan rice. will she be the president's secretary of state nominee and could she get confirmed in the senate at this point? >> i can't say that because the president has not told me what his decision will be. there have been two excellent names mentioned, ambassador rice and my colleague, senator kerry. either one of them would have a tough job following the great job of hillary clinton, but they could both serve this country in an extraordinary way as secretary of state. >> you're saying that rice could get confirmed? >> i do believe so. i think at the end, some of the criticisms against her have been unwarranted. many have gone just too far. there is really a basic feeling of fair
election again, that's because they were on the wrong side of main street america, on some cultural change happening in the country. they were on the wrong side of issues like the death penalty, on issues like the use of force in foreign affairs, and it wasn't until they'd gotten whacked, george mcgovern lost overwhelmingly, mike ducacas was beaten pretty soundly. after all those things happened, the democratic party through bill clinton and others like him trying to change it, made the party more acceptable to the american people. republicans have not gotten there yet. it was a party as we saw in the election, a declining -- white share of the vote is the declining share of the electorate. their share is going up, but not enough to compensate. >> right. >> right now the sort of primal scream you hear for spending cuts isn't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts e

and said gun proliferation and mexico was dangerous are still telling us gun proliferation in america makes us safer. welcome to the u.s.a. where of some you will find it's easier to buy a weapon designed to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time than it is to marry who you love or vote where you want or send your kids to kindergarten. we now live in a society where the aurora, colorado, shooter could buy 6,000 rounds of ammo online and tommy chung went to jail for selling bombs. it is painfully obvious... we need change in this country! and the good news, the majority of americans and the majority of gun owners agree. in fact, a new ppp poll finds that the majority of americans and the majority of gun owners support banning assault weapons and closing the gun show loophole. but the nra opposes both of those measures and in the past, the nra has successfully fought gun control legislation by threatening to attack any politician who doesn't take their hard line. even after last year's tragic gabby giffords shootin
